Each year, USTA Iowa honors the volunteers, associations, and programs that have done an outstanding job to promote the sport of tennis.
If you know of a person, an association, or program that should be recognized, send in a nomination. A detailed description about the person, association or event, press releases, and photos will assist the awards committee. Self nominations are acceptable. Award recipients will be honored at a luncheon. Before submitting a nomination for a USTA Iowa award, please review the Awards Criteria.
